Brick Pond Park + the North Augusta Greeneway
Just across the 13th Street bridge in the old Hamburg area of North Augusta, Brick Pond Park is a 40-acre restored ecosystem and nature park boasting scenic views, hiking and biking trails, and a variety of wildlife. Get up close and personal with river otters, turtles, frogs, and alligators. After the picnic you can stroll along the nearby North Augusta Greeneway, so bring comfy shoes and enjoy the entire day exploring the area.
Just minutes from downtown Augusta, Aqueduct Park is an oasis in the middle of the city. Rushing waters feed from the canal, creating a beautiful site for a picnic. Grab a spot on the rocks and enjoy the views.
